    My dad died a few days ago (he was a great dad, taught me how to fish) and it has bummed me out. It is tough getting the Christmass spirit back this year. Sorry about being a sad sack here.
    Merry Christmass to you all.

    Bill, I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I think you (we) are justified to feel sad in at the loss of a loved one.

    Try to keep your head up and carry on in a way that would honor your dear loved one.

    You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Bill, I am so sorry to hear about your Dad, I agree that losing a loved one is hard , losing them at Christmas is really tough on you and your family.

    On Christmas day embrace your family and recall all of the great memories that you have about your Dad, believe it or not it will probably be a family tradtion to talk of your memories of your Dad at Christmas.

    God Bless you and yours.

    Bill, I'm sorry to hear this, brother.

    I just lost my mother-in-law a few days ago. I had to preach the funeral service as well. It was tough; I loved her as my own mother. She was a sweetheart.

    You're in my prayers.

    Bill, I am so very sorry to hear about this. I have lost both my parents and I won't lie it hurt me like the dickens. I lost my Dad back in 2002 and I still can't talk too much about him without gettin all choked up.I will say a prayer that God will comfort you in your time of loss. God Bless you dear Brother.:sad2:

    I'm sorry to hear of your loss Brother. It gets a little easier to cope with as time passes. He will be in your Heart forever.. I lost both my parents a year apart quite a few years ago, and I still miss them. Especially at this time of year... May GOD ease your pain and help you through this tough time..
